How to find your IP address using Google, Siri, or Cortana

Your IP address is just a search bar away.

If you need to get your public IP address quickly, Google and Bing make it easy. Type "what is my IP" into your Google or Bing search bar. Your IP address will be at the top of the search results, no clicking required. Done.

This can be handy when you need to give someone (someone you trust!) direct access to your machine. For instance, for file-sharing between computers or hard drives.

Virtual assistants can help, too. You can ask Cortana or Siri "what is my IP address?" or say "OK Google, what is my IP address?" Each assistant will be able to tell you your public IP address easily.
